More Shawls

When Alyssa and Lexi were here on Sunday, I had them model some of the shawls I've knit recently. Lexi particularly liked the orangey one. It can completely cover her. I used a stitch pattern with a small amount of openwork in it, and am pleased with the way it turned out. I took a close-up to show the detail, but Blogger isn't letting me upload any more pictures tonight. Maybe it will cooperate tomorrow.


It's still with me. For the most part I'm OK during the day, but some nights have been miserable. I now apply hydrocortizone cream to my chin and right cheek before I go to bed and take two Tylenol (it works better than the pain reliever Dr Pat prescribed). Yesterday, about 9:15 a.m., my chin was suddenly burning and the pain in my jaw brought tears to my eyes. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain, so that was unusual. It only lasted for a minute or so, but it was horrible.

Today I had to go to the hospital at Mayfield to have blood drawn to see if I need to adjust my coumadin dosage (I don't, but they want to check it again next week.) After that I went to the Art Guild and talked to Dana (the director) for a while. I hadn't seen her for several weeks, so I was catching her up on my medical problems. That same burning of skin and intense pain in the jaw happened again. Is this going to be a daily thing?
